Highlights: Brett Wallace had a two-run double and Andy Simunic a three-run double to lead the short-handed Oklahoma City RedHawks to a 7-2 win over the River Cats on Thursday night at Raley Field.

Players missing: Despite missing several players because of travel problems, the RedHawks were able to field a starting lineup. At game time, some RedHawks were still en route to the ballpark. The team's flight from Oklahoma City to Sacramento was cancelled Wednesday because of weather. To get players to Sacramento, they were bussed to Dallas and sent on different flights, some direct and others on connecting flights to Los Angeles and San Francisco. Oklahoma City started the game with 13 players and four more showed up in the sixth inning.

On time: Former Woodcreek High School pitcher Eric Berger manned the Redhawks' bullpen. The left-hander had arrived in town early to visit his family.

Today: River Cats LHP Andrew Werner (3-5, 7.80 ERA) vs. Oklahoma City RHP Ross Seaton (0-3, 9.38), 7:05 p.m., Raley Field.
